Bring Home The Baby

Last Tuesday night my water broke around 9 PM. I did not have any contractions so I showered, gave DD a bath, brushed DD's teeth and got her ready for bed. Around 11:30, my contractions started, so I got DD out of bed and then we took her to my friend Nancy's house to spend the night there. DH drove me to the hospital and by the the time we got there, the contractions were pretty bad. Around 2 in the morning, I finally got my epidural after being admitted at midnight. I was exhausted and with the help of epidural, I actually fell asleep until about 5 in the morning. The baby arrived at 6:28 February 23rd Wednesday morning. When he arrived, he was 7 lbs 2 oz and 20 inches long. I thought that he looks more Asian than DD did when she was born. But he definitely has his sister's lips and long eye lashes.

We spent Wednesday night at the hospital and came home on Thursday afternoon. Here's Baby G's coming home outfit. It was his first time in a car seat and in a car :).
Baby G has all of his fingers and toes (yay!). He is a pretty clam baby. DD is very excited about having her baby brother home, but she is still trying to get used to the fact that she is no longer the center of the universe at our home. So far, she has been a pretty awesome big sister. She tells everyone how cute he is and how much she loves him.

Now that we are home, we are trying to get used to a brand new schedule and making adjustments for the new baby. My husband is taking at least 2 week paternity leave from his work to stay home with us. What an awesome husband! He has been so helpful with baby (diaper changes in the middle of the night and holding the baby when he starts crying), and he has also been great with DD (driving her to swimming lessons, gymnastic lessons, school and birthday parties).

That's not all... After we came home from the hospital on Thursday, my friend Nancy came by with a yummy dinner for all of us, then one of my MOPS moms came by on Friday to drop dinner off for us. We are feeling very lucky right now and we are definitely counting our lucky stars because we have such awesome, supportive friends.

Ahh so cute! Mine was 7 lb 2 oz as well. My son is half Korean and looked really Asian at birth when his face was puffy but more mixed as he got a little bigger. I kinda miss his super Asian face!

I'm also jealous of your cow car seat!
